Course Completion:

  • Please be aware that home study is no longer accepted for any IV Therapy and Blood Withdrawal.
  • Students must be present on campus throughout the full course to receive Certificate of Completion. If there is an absence the student will be rescheduled for another class to complete the full class time.  RNs are not eligible to receive CEHs for this course.
  • Practical testing on each other is an optional courtesy we extend to all RNs on the last day of class that includes live sticks. A proxy may be brought in your place if you cannot have a live stick performed on you for any reason.
  • RNs may also attend a third day either partial or complete to receive additional hands-on time. There is no cost for this option.

  • Equipment Box: Students are issued an equipment box in class and are responsible for the equipment. There is a $20 charge for lost or damaged equipment.
  • Medical release: A medical release from your physician is required if you are pregnant or have any other medical condition that would prevent you from participating in the live testing portion of this course.
  • Daily Expectations: Each day begins at 7:00 a.m. sharp and will run for 12 hours. Any time missed due to lateness must be made up at the end of class to prevent your certified status at a State level being delayed, or if a student misses a significant amount of class time he or she will be rescheduled.
  • This is a long course modeled after common healthcare professional work shifts. GMEC believes that our daily curriculum and break/lunch structure fosters an enriched academic learning environment to effectively retain the knowledge conveyed during those days. We strive to maintain a positive atmosphere that is encouraged by the welcome and constructive contributions of our students and highly qualified instructors.
  • To ensure students feel comfortable during testing, safety issues and possible complications are covered prior to examination. Practical testing on each other is optional for RNs. A proxy may be brought in your place if the student cannot have a live stick performed for whatever reason.
